I'll give this film a chance. Sometimes, the movies you least expect to kick ass do exactly that.

@highflyer I give every film I watch a chance and then call them for exactly what they are much to the chagrin of others.

I kinda see Reynolds as a non actor-performer like a Channing Tatum but I love Jeff Bridges. He's great. And his recent work is awesome.

Loki has been fun but Bridges has been Marvels best film villain so far. True Grit was excellent and Bridges deserved an Oscar for that one.

I like Kevin Bacon also. He was very good in 1st Class and no one seemed to notice.

Men in Black rip off starring a dude who ruins comic book movies.

This movie looks terrible. Ryan Reynolds doesn't have a good track record with comic adaptations -

Marvel/Fox - X Men Origins (promising as Wade Wilson but Deadpool was terrible)

DC - Green Lantern, horrible

Dark Horse - not expecting anything better than the former

I'm excited about his movie. My friend and I were in Boston in late 2011 when they were filming this movie and they had some streets closed off for action scenes. The movie trailer looks funny and exciting and I want to see how they used the city of Boston as the backdrop. If you haven't seen it yet, you should check out the behind the scenes footage filmed in Boston at http://www.RestInPeaceDepartment.com

What's also cool is the movie is going to be in 3D and they are making a game with it!
